President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would "think about changing" the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans. Obama, in an interview on Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, said team names like the Redskins offend "a sizable group of people." He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon)

The pressure is building to change the name of the Washington Redskins due to its potentially insensitive meaning for American Indians. NBC’s Bob Costas added to the push in his on-air comments last night during the Dallas Cowboys/Washington Redskins game where he called the team name ‘an insult’ and a ‘slur’. John Carlson and listeners react to Costas’s call to change the name.
